Bobbi Brown Rich Lip Color SPF 12

Bobbi Brown just launched a new lip color formula for spring called Rich Lip Color ($22).  There are twelve shades in the range, from pink beige to a rich plum. The formula is designed to feel lightweight, give lots of color, with a creamy soft texture to moisturize lips with a SPF 12. The formula also combines pigments with a clear base to deliver pure color with one application.  I picked up a few colors and the first I will review is Bikini Pink (softwhite pink).

Bikini Pink is a light medium pink with no shimmer.  Actually this formula does not have any shimmer in any of the colors. Bikini Pink is a great color for spring and summer, very fun and everyday wearable.  I found that this formula is in fact very lightweight and easy to wear.  I would recommend that you apply this formula on recently conditioned lips.  If your lips are too dry, the color can look a little flakey.  The coverage is pretty much opaque when applied from the tube but can be applied easily and lighter with a lip brush.  Also for extra shine, throw on some Crystal Lip Gloss overtop. Overall, a nice new formula from Bobbi Brown and I hope to see more colors added to the range in the future.
